    Best Practices to Safeguard Your Ministry: safety training for you and your team

    2pm - 5pmWhanganui TBC

    This training is for all Anglican clergy, vestry members and anyone working with children and their families - however it could also be useful for anyone in any form of pastoral care.

    Cost: $40 per Anglican Parish/Mission Unit (we will invoice parishes directly)

    It will focus on how to keep children, their families and ourselves safe. We will look at our roles and responsibilities as leaders, creating a culture of safe practice, discuss possible scenarios, and how to manage incidents when they occur.

    We want to encourage you to bring your whole team - so we are putting on dinner and time to network with each other. Please share this invitation with your ministry teams!

    We'll let you know when you can register for this event.

    Please contact Colette Stevens, Diocesan Children and Family Ministry Facilitator, if you have any questions:
